Dr. Bradley focuses his practice on sports medicine, orthopedic trauma, and knee/shoulder/hip replacements. He is board-certified and holds an advanced Certificate of Added Qualification in Sports Medicine. He serves as President/CEO of Ortho Rhode Island as well as Chief of Orthopedic Surgery at South County Hospital, and holds several local and national orthopedic leadership positions. As a URI official athletic department physician, he cares for URI athletes, where coincidentally his father coached soccer for nearly 20 years. He enjoys sharing knowledge through teaching nationally at several courses and conferences, as well as by working as a consultant for several industry leaders in medical education and product development including Arthrex, DJO Global, and Corin.

His patient care philosophy is to be a good listener and offer options, collaborating with patients on their treatment rather than pushing in any one direction. He chose orthopedic surgery as his specialty because he enjoys solving patient problems and helping them get back to whatever they consider to be normal activities.

Dr. Bradley found his passion for medicine and orthopedics while at Dartmouth College where he played collegiate soccer before he went on to play professional soccer in Seattle. After medical school, he spent four years on active duty in the U.S. Navy as the Head of Orthopedics in Newport, RI, where he was also Head Team Physician for the Naval Academy Prep School and Team Physician for the United States Coast Guard Academy. In 2009, he was deployed to Afghanistan and spent eight months caring for wounded warriors and Afghan civilians. He returned home to Rhode Island and joined South County Orthopedics in 2010.

When he’s not helping patients, he loves spending time with his wife and four children. His older sons and younger daughters all participate in activities and sports at all levels and he continues to stay active in sports, occasionally on the soccer field, either playing or coaching. But, more often than not, he is cycling or paddle boarding with his wife.
